The Oracle Solaris 11 software is distributed in packages that are managed by the Image Packaging System (IPS).

Note - No upgrade path from Oracle Solaris 10 to Oracle Solaris 11 is available. You must perform a fresh installation, but first review the migration features in Table 1-3. You can use the pkg update command to update one or more packages from one version to a newer version.
